APD to create a CSV file works ok in Foreground but not as part of Proc. Ch

Hi All,

We are creating an APD to download a Query to a CSV File. This file gets created correctly in Foreground but then, when we put it as part of a Process Chain, the file gets created but a column that contains an amount is getting created incorrectly. (This amount is a text field with the result of adding the negative sign on the first position instead of the last position).

For example, the amount in foreground is 14356.00, the new value is 1.435600.

In Foreground works fine but as part of a Process Chain I can't make it work.

Any clue of why this is happening?

Thanks & Regards,

Ernesto.

    Hi,

    When you schedule a process chain then background user is used for execution while in the foreground your own ID is used, so check the decimal point settings for background user from user maintenance transaction.
